In emerging times, while people are more and more inclined towards using cloud platforms and in the age of dependence on IOT, the foremost problem that we are facing is that of our data security and prevention from unauthorised access. While we do acknowledge the problem, very less of alternate solutions have been adopted even by the technology giants. We try to study people’s behaviour from their insights and try to propose an implementable plan with alternate solutions and analysis of other factors involved. Personal in depth interviews using Design Thinking method led us to consolidate results for an age group to ideate and simulated needs and aspirations from the interviews. Popularised by the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design ( at Stanford), Design Thinking has been used in accelerator programs, assist creative leadership and innovation. We examined the Information System problems in a five-stage approach—Empathy, Define, Ideation, Prototype and Testing. Special attention has been paid to filter out the ideas based on their cornerstone characteristics of empathy by design thinking like solution to the problem, acceptance, efficiency, privacy, cost in order of priority and the same has led us to come up with more interactive, user friendly and customer focussed solutions with security being the key factor. We developed a prototype called ‘Sir-cure’. It is an app for password management. We conclude that DT method has been instrumental for this project in solving real world problems
